Half way to my weight goal

Friday, August 24, 2012

So at the beginning of my journey I wanted to lose 60 pounds. I have now lost 30 pounds. It seems sort of surreal, because it kind of snuck up on me. Even though I think of weight loss A LOT, I also feel I mess up a lot with not going to the gym and not eating correctly.

I feel sort of guilty because a lot of my weight loss is due to me not having money for food. I feel as though it sort of cheapens everything.

One thing I have done right is severely lowered my drinking. I am happy for that. That red red wine was doing me no favors, even though I love it.

My "weight goal" is 150, which is still considered overweight by BMI standards. According to BMI I my weight maximum normal range weight is 133.

But it is all baby steps for now.

So I guess the point of this entry is to address my current situation and move on.

Now here a wierd forced smile thumbs up to myself for losing some weight!

Love always, Emily

    emoticon on achieving this major milestone! And remember, you don't have to be perfect to keep making progress.

    150 was my goal too, when I started at 215. It took me about 20 months to get there, but reach it I did, by taking one babystep after another. emoticon emoticon I even started a Babysteps Brigade team to help me do it and to start on the road to shedding some of my major clutter, too!

    I would like to reach a healthy BMI too, one of these days. I'll just keep doing positive things for my health and well-being, and I'll get there. I'm not in a hurry, since I intend to be healthy all my life. emoticon A great piece of advice I read in a blog is "Don't do anything to lose weight that you aren't willing to do for the rest of your life." Quick fixes and temporary measures are not the way. Find those little changes in behavior that work for you.

    Know that you have emoticon s to cheer you on emoticon and support you emoticon along the way. Be proud! emoticon

    Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon
